  • Chan has not injected any of his playful charm or physical virtuosity into Wang Xingdong's and Chen Baoguang's insipid, poorly structured screenplay.

  • Sweeping, if exhausting, historical epic set at the turn of the 20th century. show more

  • 1911 isn't propaganda but more a relentless, serious, fiercely nationalistic bit of historical mythmaking. show more
